Stanford men’s basketball received recognition Monday by the Pac 12 as juniors Dwight Powell and Josh Huestis receive All Pac 12 honors. Dwight Powell was a First Team selection and won Most Improved Player of the Year.
There are some games where records just don’t matter. Tournament seeding, March Madness implications, momentum swings—you name it, but none of it matters. These are rivalry games, and when the Stanford Cardinal rolls into Berkeley to take on the California Golden Bears, all bets are off.
Dwight Powell’s game-tying dunk attempt came a split-second too late as Stanford men’s basketball dropped a close Pac-12 matchup at home against Colorado, 63-65.
As the Stanford men’s basketball team prepares for its last two games in Maples Pavilion this year, it finds itself in the all-too-familiar position of playing for little more than pride and a meager chance at a magical run.
